Amazon Studios has released the first trailer for Life Itself, an upcoming romantic drama from This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman.
Oscar Isaac and Olivia Wilde lead the strong cast of this emotional-looking pic, which looks to be nicely in the vain of Fogelman’s aforementioned series. The film follows a New York couple from their college days through to the birth of their first child, a relationship that, as the synopsis says, creates reverberations “that echo over continents and through lifetimes.” There are hints of a twist or two as well.
It looks like an amiable film with nice performances, and the potential to hit you right in the feels. Fogelman’s feature work as writer includes Tangled and Crazy, Stupid, Love, so he’s certainly shown he’s got the skills to pen a hit. Fingers crossed here.
Life Itself, also starring Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening, Olivia Cooke, Sergio Peris- Mencheta, Laia Costa, Alex Monner and Mandy Patinkin, will open in the US on September 21 and arrives in Australia on October 25.
